This is something that most people hope for, however, eight-five percent of those people will not see any results. People over the age of thirty-five are likely to be experiencing a fault in their metabolism from decades of toxin build up, nutrient deficiencies, and a change in hormones.

Another possibility for almost every age group is their thyroid health. Did you know that your thyroid is what is in charge of your metabolic rate? It is also what determines how many calories you burn. One tip that you can start working on now to help your metabolism: sleep 7-9 hours a night. This rest needs to be quality sleep.
